GreenTown Conference at SeaGate Centre
On October 25 & 26, GreenTown: The Future of Community will be coming to the SeaGate Centre in downtown Toledo. GreenTown is a dynamic experience designed to help create sustainable communities. Active since 2007, the conference directors bring inspiring speakers and case studies to an audience of community leaders representing government, business, and higher education. The goal is to promote networking and interaction and ultimately to help a community form sustainable plans to address transportation questions, natural resources issues, and pursue eco-centered development.
Topics scheduled for the Toledo/Lucas County conference include green jobs, green infrastructure, brownfield redevelopment, local food, active living, clean water and air, transportation issues including walkable and bikable communities. This event will feature keynote speaker, Mark Fenton, Host of the PBS program America’s Walking.
